Guns and Consciousness

Guns and consciousness

In memory of victims of the elementary school massacre

What is wrong with us

Fallen in love with our guns?

Obsessed with an outdated right

“Of the people to bear arms”

“A well regulated Militia to secure a free state.”

Constitution was written two centuries ago

Is that why we worship guns?

When was the last time

People deterred the tyranny of their government

Formed Militia with guns in their hands?

Are guns legal for hunting?

How many rounds of ammunition

Discharged from a semi-automatic gun are needed

For a prancing deer to fall and die?

It’s not about security, liberty or constitution

Violence is engraved in our psyche

Villains are praised, mobs admired,

The vicious games and Hollywood crap,

The Pup Culture is to blame.

Gun manufacturers are profiteers

Filmmakers, song writers too

Politicians with strings attached

Coconspirators in gun related crimes.

How come no one in corporate media

Dares to rise above the fray

Ask the hard question

Why so much bloodshed in the name of freedom?

Morality of a nation is on verge of collapse.

Add to this shenanigan a broken mental health

Scarce budget for needed care

20 percent of population affected yet ignored every day.

Dystopia is in the making, stage is set

For an anti-hero, a Joker of the sort

Demented villain, fully armed

A lethal blend of delusion and bullets

Snaps into action to take charge

In a matter of minutes

Tragedy in sight, carnage everywhere.

Blood of children, stain on conscience

Fallen angels wallowed in vain.
